We have a very goohd hands-on museum here in Orange County in Santa Ana–the Discovery Center Museum. The Bowers Museum is also very good but is more of the traditional museum. Our city library in Mission Viejo has a large children’s picture book and nonfiction book sectionfs that include books on environmental issues and protection and books with ideas for experiments that can be done at home. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

You mention hands on activities but you don’t provide as source of these things that you and a child might do at home or where to get some necessary objects to teach science at home. Like a prisim to show that white light is a combination of all, or a project showing you how to build an around the corner parascope while looking in it from dark room to show how light is reflected. How can one get a large screw to lft something heavy on it to show that the screw is a series of inclined planes and all sorts of other things.

It was a blast, especially with those 3d glasses. They now have a solar powered flying object and a laser magnifying machine. I was very impressed with both goofy professor guys doing the talking and my kid patiently watching the show and not taking of her glasses.

Thank you for the information you share here, I can tell you really care about the overall progress and us (average joe-shmoes) learning about it.

Feel free to visit my site if you like, I have some challenging philosophical articles there:
